Re: Mad, Mad Multitasking
I think the ribbon still gives you most of the same options in Word for example, but they're just hidden in a crap interface. Judging by the small sample of users in my work group they find it extremely frustrating and even after what is now many months of use they still have trouble finding functions they use quite often. The problem with 'simplifying' a voice interface is that you have to think while you talk. Clicking toolbars and pop-outs is more like typing, you can do it almost mechanically provided you know where things are. That's why the ribbon is such a fail.
